This is Iowa Remembers, Inc.’s fifth year of honoring Iowa’s fallen service members. Our events are held the last weekend of September, which is Gold Star Mother’s weekend. This year’s events will include the Annual Retreat (a private event), the 5th Annual Remembrance Run (5K Walk/Run) and An Evening with Marcus Luttrell – Lone Survivor: A Tribute to Courage, Honor and Patriotism.
The 5th Annual Remembrance Run (5K Walk/Run) will be held Sunday, September 28, 2014, at 9:45 a.m. at Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines.
An Evening with Marcus Luttrell will be held Sunday evening, September 28, at the Iowa Events Center Grand Ballroom at 7:00 p.m. General admission tickets are $45 and are on sale now!
Proceeds from the Remembrance Run fund the Annual Retreat for Iowa Families of Fallen Service Members. The retreat is a private event for family members in Iowa who have lost a service member. The meeting provides the families with useful resources and support, and facilitates a peer network for the participants. The retreat is held the same weekend as the Remembrance Run.
